Jeff Larson has lived in District 129 for 28 years. He has worked in Mission Control at NASA for 25 of those years. Since leaving NASA, he formed a small aerospace business with former co-workers. Jeff earned a Master of Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Houston.
Jeff and his wife, Janette, celebrated their 30th anniversary this year. They are the proud parents of their daughter, Jenny. Jenny completed her high school education while earning a 2-year degree from San Jacinto College. She is now a Junior at the University of Houston, just one year after leaving high school.
Jeff has been active in the Republican Party in Texas since the 1980s. In 1986, Jeff was elected as a precinct chair in the district. In addition to many years of service in that position, Jeff has served the Harris County Republican Party as a member of the Vacancy, Candidates, and Judicial Candidates Screening Committees. He is also active in the Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas, serving first as a board member and currently as State Chairman of that organization. He has served as a delegate to numerous precinct, district, and state conventions, and also the 2012 national convention in Tampa.
Jeff is a leader who has served as president of the Houston Space Society, helped plan the first Houston Tea Party rally at Jones Plaza, and traveled to several Republican National Committee meetings to advocate on behalf of grass roots voters. He is also a member of the Clear Lake Area Republicans.
He is a conservative activist who supports the principles of liberty and limited government in many ways. One day, Jeff may be advocating for Zero-Based Budgeting at a Harris County Commissioner’s Court meeting, on another addressing a First Friday gathering about the internal workings of the Republican Party, and on still another distributing conservative literature at a Houston Juneteenth parade. You can expect him to continue that work ethic as he represents and serves the Bay Area in the statehouse in Austin.
